Pop Beads, We Play



Little J has a fine motor delay that is fairly well resolved now, but I still pay attention and do special activities with him.  Last year I bought a set of Pop Bead People by Klutz and this past year I bought a big bucket of Pop Beads By Parents at the big Target toy sale.  I brought them out today for the kids to play with.  They are recommended for kids 4+ so I supervised Sassyfras and Juiciness very closely.  They had so much fun popping them together and then pulling them apart.

I've never seen those before. Looks like you can make all sorts of things.

This really looks like an interesting toy to have. I remember your comment on one of my posts and never had a chance to respond. I talked to Anna's preschool teachers, and they think that her motor skills are age-appropriate. Still, I am trying to encourage small muscle activities such as playmobil play, playdoh, cutting, etc. I wish we could borrow those beads somewhere - I am trying not to overload my house with too many plastic toys, but they do look tempting.

They look fabulous. I'm always keen to find new ways of increasing my daughters hand strength as her joints are so bendy she needs to have extra strong muscles.

I haven't seen those before either. And how come I always miss the big Target sale?! Those would be great for Cutie Pie, he seems to still not like to do much fine motor-wise.

I've never seen these before either - but they look fabulous for little finger work-outs! I might do an online search.... Happy Playing!

Same as everyone else - I have never see these before! But I love ideas for developing fine motor skills...Glad they had fun playing with these - I adore the names Sassyfras and Juiciness by the way!

There are just so many great toys around now for play and developing specific skills and the pop beads look like great fun, with lots of flexibility.
